USDJPY continues to trade below the 50-day EMA, at 132.77. This average represents a key short-term level and a clear break is required to suggest scope for an extension higher that would expose 134.77, the Jan 6 high. The broader trend direction remains down and recent gains are considered corrective. Firm support to watch is at 128.09, the Feb 2 low. The bear trigger is at 127.23, the Jan 16 low - a break would resume the downtrend.
